Publisher Summary
Discusses the life and accomplishments of Henry Ford, a man who changed the American way of life in the 1900s by inventing the Model T and founding the Ford Motor Company.

As a young boy, Henry Ford was fascinated by technology and how objects worked. His childhood interests led him to leave the Ford family farm in Michigan in search of a career with machinery, and the rest is automotive and economic history.
